Write a Web Application for Free Edition 2

About the Book

Learning HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, PHP and SQL all at the same time is quite a tall order. This book gets you started with each language, one at a time, all going to create a working web application. For free.

A school friend of mine got Parkinson's syndrome at the age of 39. He set up a charity in the UK to help people that suffer with Parkinson's. The charity is http://parkinsonsequip.org.uk and all the proceeds from this book go to the charity.

About the Author

Thomas Davenport
Thomas Davenport

I lecture in maths and computer science at Aston University in Birmingham, UK. My passion is getting people to think, to put their calculators down and to use the best computer they will ever have, the one between their ears. I don't care about exam results (well almost). I care about my students becoming more thoughtful and fulfilled people.
